Our Not Back to School picnic illustrated why we love home educating so much and showed the diversity of the home educating community.
Families arrived, parents set out picnic blankets and food, while the children played at climbing trees, building dens, parachute games, football, hide and seek and taking photographs of each other.
The youngest there were babies, the eldest approaching the end of their primary school years.
Some families were at the start of their home educating journey, some have been doing it for years.
Some children had never set foot in a school setting, others started school then were withdrawn after several years.
Some families unschool, some follow a curriculum.
We all sat under the trees in the park and watched our children play together.
